I first want to say Thank You to AToMR Tours for hosting this blog tour and allowing me to be a part of it.After reading the first book I jumped right into the sequel which was completely and utterly as fascinating as the first one with a lot more action and adventure for The Riverton Brothers.

After defeating the evil Wizard Azazel the Riverton Brother's have to rebuild what was destroyed by the evilness of the wizard Azazel. Jared the older brother is building a school of magic where the brothe

Two years have passed since the Riverton family arrived in Trimoria and acquired their magical powers. But a new threat is never far away, and dad Jared Lancaster knows his boys and everyone else close to him must be prepared when that threat nears.

So the boys are sent to train and strengthen their powers with the elves, and Jared opens a school where all citizens who show some magic potential can attend. New allies and old friends come together to face the latest evil Sammael has to offer.

Picking up right where Heirs of Prophecy left off, Michael Rothman whisks readers right back into the Riverton's brother's world of magic, danger, suspense and adventure. Much of what I enjoyed with book one rings true with book two. The brothers are older teens, a bit more mature and very skilled in the ways of their new home, and in harnessing their unique powers. They're still young and still have a lot to learn, but I liked seeing how much they're grown and continue to grow and learn as the ...more
*** I received an advanced review copy of this book from the author in exchange for honest review. ***

In a war against Gods, the Riverton family has a job to do. For those who are new to this series, there might be some spoilers in this review.

The story starts right where "Heirs of Prophecy" ended - after the Riverton family, along with their friend, Throll, killed the evil wizard, Azazel. Everyone is busy.. Throll is now the King of Trimoria. Ryan and Aaron Riverton are no longer kids..they ar

When I first got the invitation to participate in the blog tour for Tools of Prophecy I was a little nervous to join in because I haven't read the first book in this series but now I'm really glad that I did choose to participate. Yes somethings were a little confusing but the book itself was so

Heirs of Prophecy left off at a climactic moment, so I was interested to see where Michael A. Rothman would pick up in this sequel. Sure enough, the beginning of Tools of Prophecy whisks readers right back into the heart of the story line. If you haven't read book one, you'll still be able to pick things up here. Rothman gives a quick synopsis of what happened before. The Rivertons are back, and with them comes the epic adventure that they set off on before. Danger, magic, mayhem. It's all here ...more

Tools of Prophecy by Michael Rothman is an exciting and addicting sequel in The Prophecy Series. Tools of Prophecy takes place two years after the Rivertons entered Trimoria. Ryan now 16 and Aaron 15 have been training and preparing for the future battle. They know they cannot do it alone, and the Riverton family with the help of the Lancasters begin to find and recruit Trimoria citizens that have magical abilities. This is done in hopes of forming a powerful wizard army for the battle of the pr ...more

As with the first book, Heirs of Prophecy, I also enjoyed this one. It picks up from where the first book left off and new things about Trimoria and its people are introduced. Of course, there are also new characters (and new creatures!) that come into play. The characters have grown and are slowly coming into their powers and more things are revealed about the prophecies that surround them. Although, like the first book, the pace is slow and easy, things are definitely getting more exciting. Wh ...more

Talk about a reading adventure!
When I first received Tools of Prophecy I was a little skeptical because I hadn’t read the first book in the saga so I did not quite know what to expect. However, I was glad that I put all my skepticism aside, opened up the book, and began to read.
Although there were times when I found myself a bit lost (since I have yet to read the first book) I still found this story exciting with plenty of action and a very interesting read. The character are sweet and memorable

This is a bit better than Heirs of Prophecy. There’s more action, more excitement, and more interesting things coming to light. I think the characters are a bit more developed – and we even have some references to life before they came to Trimoria. That was on thing I felt was really missing from the first. We also get more of the area’s history, and I think this helps more fully develop the world – and make the reader care more for these people and their plight.

In some ways this reminds me of L

Like the first book, this book immediately reminded of previous novels or movies I had watched. A school for magic was started to teach others about how to defend against evil. And BOOM! First thing I thought of? Harry Potter! And as I read on I felt like there was some Supernatural connection. Azazel in the first book? Demon Lord in the second? Haha, perhaps I am over thinking it?

This book was more mature than the first book. The boys were older in this book but the story itself was darker, mor

In this second exciting book of Michael A. Rothman's series, an epic battle awaits. While Ryan Riverton begins his training in wizardry in the Elven Kingdom, Aaron Riverton must build an army to defeat Sammael and the wicked elven queen, Elisandrea. Perhaps with help from family, friends, fiancees, and Silver, Trimoria will be saved.

I really liked the pace of this book and enjoyed how the action and adventure was mixed with romance. The author writes fluently and his story is easy to follow. The

This was an okay read. There were several questionable aspects of this book. The author mentioned a nude elf, which makes it debatable read for young children. There were a couple more moral issues addressed in this book; the author had the main character kill someone else in order to save a different life (he literally sucked the life out of someone and transferred it to the other person). There were good, exciting parts in this book, but before reading the book, I would suggest (if you are you ...more
